The Tiraspol-based headquarters of Tiraspoltransgas.

Tiraspoltransgas-Pridnestrovie (Russian: Тираспольтрансгаз – Приднестровье, also referred as Tiraspoltransgas or Tiraspoltransgaz) is the largest gas supplier in Transnistria[citation needed], with headquarters in Tiraspol. It was established in 1993.

The majority shares of Tiraspoltransgas is probably controlled by Russia's Gazprom, although Gazprom has not confirmed the ownership officially[citation needed].

Tiraspoltransgas handles an annual traffic of 23 to 24 billion cubic meters of Russian gas via Transnistria. This is sent to both the rest of Moldova and further west, to other countries in Europe. In addition, Transnistria itself consumes 1.2 to 1.3 billion cubic meters a year.
